Apple’s iPhone XR Now Available to Preorder for $749

Despite the smallest battery iPhone XS Max lasts longer

Sam's Club members who pre-order an iPhone Xr will receive a $100 Sam's Club gift card if they purchase and activate their new device on 10/26 through 10/28.

Apple has finally opened Australian pre-orders for its new iPhone XR - the most affordable of its 2018 smartphone trio, releasing almost a month after the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The major difference between the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xr is the screen and the camera.

iPhone XR will go on sale in more than 50 countries and territories on October 26.

iPhone XR pre-orders opened 6:01 pm last Friday (AEDT), with the device costing A$1,229 for 64GB, A$1,299 for 128GB, and $1,479 for 256GB on Apple's website here.

iPhone XR also introduces Dual SIM through the use of a nano-SIM and digital eSIM. iPhone XR is water resistant, with a rating of IP67, and protects against everyday spills including coffee, tea and soda. It's certainly a welcomed move, and demonstrates how important the iPhone XR is in developing and growth markets. Taking a look at the iPhone XR's specs and price, the device arguably offers prospective buyers more bang for the buck than most iPhone models we've seen in recent years.

Even though the resolution on the iPhone XR is lower than that of the X, the screen is actually larger. Improvements to the ISP, Neural Engine and software algorithms enable Portrait mode from a single-lens camera with bokeh effect.
